Evaluation Kit Explores Power Devices
Providing a first-evaluation solution to assess Nextreme's power generation technology, the eTEG Thermoelectric Power Generation Evaluation Kit requires only modest equipment to measure the power generated by the company’s eTEG UPF40 devices. A nanoengineered thin-film embedded thermoelectric generator (eTEG) generates electrical power (greater than that of one using conventional materials) via the Seebeck effect, where electricity is produced from a temperature differential applied across the device. The evaluation kit includes a thick film heater as the heat source, an embedded eTEG UPF40 power generator module, a heat sink/fan assembly and thermocouples for temperature measurement. The kit provides the full thermal path - from heat source to heat sink - and requires only a power supply for the heater and a volt meter.
